Ate here on Friday night with a group of friends. The buffet was up to the normal high standard with all dishes in plentiful supply. The fresh oysters in the shell were succulent and the rest of the dishes were hot and tasty. This restaurant is always a great option for visitors 5 the bay....great prices and even better food.

Ordered some takeaway noodles and it took over 40 mins. We were told that it would be a wait but not expecting this long. They seemed to be short of staff and the management wasn't good

Tasty and Freshly made at a very good price. Seafood Buffet sported the Biggest Oysters that I have seen and tasted in NZ. What was nice about this restaurant is that you did not feel rushed to eat up and go, it was a buffet and food was made fresh and kept on coming out to the Bain Marie. The... More

We recently visited this restaurant and tried there buffet meal as far as buffets go not bad but not great either just middle of the road. Cant complain about the service though were very attentive and as far as price goes good value. Would revisit again but would not take the buffet option food kept under lights is not good.

We ordered takeaway only on two occasions. Decent Chinese food. Large serves and value for money. They prepared gluten free meals as we requested.

After a long drive this was just what we needed! Chicken fried rice had huge chunks of chicken and the chips were delicious. Paid for one garlic bread and received two more for free. Awesome place :)

We always enjoy our meals off the Ala Carte menu. The Hot & spicy Calamari is so my favourite. Service is great & food always arrives promptly. Prices are good & wine not over expensive. They will cater to no MSG or Gluten Free

They delivered to our motel at Haruru Falls. Was promised delivery in 20-25 minutes, but was more like 15 minutes!! The food was delicious and plentiful, enough for dinner two nights. I had chicken chow mein and my partner had bbq pork fried rice.

This restaurant was the first Chinese buffet we had ever visited in 2002. We had 4 very tall children with us and the owner did not question their ages( price is determined by age)!2 years on we visited again as a couple and were delighted to find the same waiter(South African) and a delightful and well priced menu.
